Five shorts by helmers from Italy, the U.K., Iran, France and Hong Kong that were specially commissioned to mark next summer’s Beijing Olympics will screen in January.
The five-minute pics make up the “Vision Beijing” series, which was started last year by the Beijing Foreign Cultural Exchange Assn. and the Information Office of the Beijing Municipal Government to sell the city to the world as it hosts next year’s Olympic Games.
The helmers taking part are Italy’s Giuseppe Tornatore, Iranian Majid Majidi, Frenchman Patrice Leconte, Englishman Daryl Goodrich and Lau Wai-Keung from Hong Kong.
The pics will be shown on national network CCTV and on pubcasters in Italy, France and Iran.
